I built my 8-year-old son a computer last year and when he wanted to get the machine online so he could play the online kids games that they use at school I had to have a long talk with him about what he could and could not do online. I still make him come get me each time he wants to download something so I can see what it is and where it is before he clicks anything. We have seen a tablet computer from Peewee PC aimed at kids before.
Peewee PC has now announced what it called the Peewee Kit that promises to turn any computer into a child friendly system. The system is designed with cheap netbooks in mind and includes a USB drive, Peewee Security suite, and seven different game titles.
The games included are fun titles for kids like Reader Rabbit and Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego. The important part is the security suite that offers a setting called Peewee Privacy to keep kids safe and secure online. The software blocks inappropriate sites and lets parent put a limit on how much time they can spend online. The kit sells for $29.99 with free shipping loaded on a flash drive or $19.99 for a CD version with four software titles.
